I was in Nariobi for a week and decided to splurge on eating out.
- Mama Rocks
- Great burgers and shakes, lots of locations
- Silk Noodles
- Authentic Chinese noodle soups
- Taco 253
- Great tacos at the Village Market
- The Arbor Place
- Their menu rotates. I had great Malaysian food when I went
- Tasty Japanese stir fries, no vegetarian ramen though 😦
- Kesh Kesh Cafe
- Classic Ethiopian. Jess says it’s an institution in Nariobi
Maybe we’ll add these to Harry’s list when he’s tried them.
Vinay, Eric, and I went to the Mara last weekend. We got up close to lots of animals. No epic Mara River crossing though, ’cause we’re a little early in the season.
I’m channeling Sir Rice in these doodles.
Treating myself to a Stoney Tangawizi today.
I usually don’t like carbonated drinks, but this one ain’t bad.
Eric and I went to visit the Kisumu Railway station today.
It was originally built in 1901 but is no longer in use.
A few enterprising businesses moved in.
One was a restaurant on the train platform.
Another is a bar that’s being built in the central building.
It’s a terrific venue so I’m delighted to see the space being reclaimed.
I learned about Insomnia from Vinay.
Insomnia makes sending REST requests really easy to manage, so you don’t have to store a whole bunch of
It’s very similar to Postman (also an excellent requests manager).
Harry would probably tell me there’s an emacs mode for this.
I bet that emacs mode doesn’t have a punny name.
Last weekend, I went see Kabir Singh.
Turns out the movie theater was closed for renovations.
Maybe I’ll try again in a couple of weeks.
I went to see the Elgon Cup yesterday at Mamboleo .
My boda driver took a less-traveled route so I was surprised to see tents suddenly pop up after long stretches of wild grass.
The venue was awesome. You could go right up to the field!
I’d watched a lot of American football growing up, but never rugby. I had no idea what was happening.
Music blasted from the a stage during intermission and half time.
Uganda Lady Cranes 13 – Kenya Lionesses 44
Uganda Cranes 16 – Kenya Simbas 13
